There is a special formula for this, do you know what it is?

Wouldn't the steps be to do: Y2  Y1 Over X2  X1

Yes great!

That part I do know, but it's the part that comes after I'm not so sure of

So now you can just pick which ever points you wan as Y2 X2 and so on

Is the answer always supposed to be a fraction?

technically not

for example if you get 10/5 the slope might end up being 5 which would technically be 5/1 in rise over run form. Making 5 rise and 1 run

I'm sorry the slope will end up being 2*

oh, I forgot I was supposed to simplify

always, but when you graph the fraction even if you get slope 4 for example you would still move 1 to the right. Did i answer your questions?

Yes you did. Thank you!

Just one last thought, but it is common for the rise to be negative sometimes right?
 one year ago

yazthespaz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes, but when your simplifying the slope form, if the rise is negative the whole slope is negative just like when the run is negative the whole slope is negative
 one year ago

yazthespaz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
basically the rise cannot be negative and the run is positive, if one is negative they are both negative

yazthespaz Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
or vise versa

Ahh, I see it now. Thank you
